    Bosses are maddening. Colleagues are profoundly irritating. And balancing family and work is daunting. So how do we balance success with sanity? How do we progress without burning out?

    Whether you're drowning in a toxic working environment, battling burnout, recovering from redundancy, or just struggling to figure out what you actually want from your career, Cate Sevilla is here to help coach you through the shittiness of your work day, and help you shift your relationship with your career.

    Having worked at giant corporations like Google (where her days consisted of aggressive bosses, complimentary pastries and lots of tears) and scrappy start-ups like The Pool (where she was Editor-in-Chief when it all went pear-shaped), Cate Sevilla has laboured through a lot of stressful and downright ridiculous work situations so that you don't have to.

    Drawing from lessons learned in her career and interviews with other women, How to Work Without Losing Your Mind is a relatable and reassuring guide to the messy, stressful and sometimes bizarre side of work that everyone experiences but no one talks about.

    It'll be your tonic after a long, hard working week, where you've ugly cried with your colleagues and are exhausted from endless video calls - and are wondering what the hell to do next.

Cate Sevilla has led and managed editorial teams for some of the world's largest media and tech companies - including Google, BuzzFeed and Microsoft. She was a founding member of BuzzFeed UK and later became editor-in-chief at The Pool, at the helm when the company collapsed. Cate is the co-host of Sali Hughes' monthly show on Soho Radio. She is launching a podcast to accompany the publication of her debut book. American with Filipino heritage, Cate was born in California, and moved to London age 20 to marry a British man she met on MySpace - 14 years later, they are strong as ever.
